Abstract
Primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) is a rare malignancy which is seen in postmenopausal women. The diagnosis requires exclusion of serous carcinoma arising from ovaries and fallopian tubes. Histological diagnosis of PPSC is necessary to rule out other pathological conditions like malignant mesothelioma, pseudomyxoma peritonei and peritoneal carcinomatosis. We present a case of PPSC in a 52 years old female patient having complaints of abdominal mass and pain in abdomen. The patient was clinically diagnosed as primary ovarian carcinoma with peritoneal metastasis.
